Silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament

A silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for our bishops, priests and all those in the consecrated life during this “Year of Consecrated Life”.  It also gives each of us  the opportunity to have some time alone with Jesus and He with us. Continues this Wednesday from 8pm to 9pm, at Llay.

Supporting evangelisation through prayer

Cardinal Vincent Nichols and our Bishops invite every parish to support the work of evangelisation in prayer.  In this parish those who attended the “Proclaim 15” Conference in Birmingham last Saturday invite us to join them for an hour’s prayer on Tuesdays at Llay, from 2pm to 3pm “Let us pray”.

There are now online keynote speech videos from the Conference in Birmingham which can be found @

Harvest 2015

“Harvest” will be celebrated at all our Masses this weekend.  Harvest produce/food can be brought to all 3 Masses and afterwards it will be delivered to the Poor Clare Convent in Hawarden.

It is also our Harvest Family Fast Day Collection. We surely saved a great deal by our Family Fast on this Friday past. Today in our Retiring Collection we give all we have saved (and perhaps a bit more!) to the poor, by way of CAFOD.  You may wish to avail of the CAFOD double envelopes (which are at the back) for your giving – and these also enable those who wish to do so, to Gift Aid their donations (if they are taxpayers) and/or to arrange for regular contributions to CAFOD by way of direct debit.  See the notice in the porch and do the best you can. Please also take one of the “Harvest 2015” bookmarks (from the back).

Proclaim ’15 Update

The Bishop’s Conference has now made available the resources for parishes which are an outcome of the Proclaim ’15 conference held in July 2015.  We are now looking at these and will shortly be bringing them out to the  parish.
